Why See Perfect Crime?
A New York Theatre Staple!
A staple of New York theatre, much like The Mousetrap across the pond in London, this show goes far and beyond the traditional mystery play. It is a sexy, compelling comedy-thriller, with well-timed surprises and laughs that relieve a growing dramatic tension. The main character is a Harvard-educated psychiatrist accused of bumping off her wealthy, foppish British husband.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The story is set in an affluent Connecticut town where a suspected murderess conducts her practice out of her secluded mansion. The handsome detective assigned to the case must overcome his own love nterest in the woman as he seeks to discover who murdered her husband, if indeed he was murdered at all.Or is it all an elaborate ruse leading up to The Perfect Crime? You'll have to see to find out - you'll find no spoilers here....

Expertly acted, pleasingly sung, and often visually splendid, it makes a good faith attempt to honor the show's history and intentions while also acknowledging the charged sexual politics of the moment
